In response to the ongoing dialog regarding systemic racism, law enforcement reform, and social justice movements, SSRN has created a Race & Social Inequity research page and eJournal. The subject matter experts have curated a view into early-stage research from fields of study such as anthropology, criminal justice, law, philosophy, and political science that we hope will provide insights and bring about lasting change. We hope you take some time to peruse the thought-provoking papers showcased on this hub.
SSRN is an open-access online preprint community providing valuable services to leading academic schools and government institutions. Specializing primarily in social sciences, including economics, law, corporate governance, and humanities, SSRN is branching out in to other science disciplines providing opportunities for scholars to post their early research, collaborate on theories and discoveries, and get credit for their ideas before peer reviewed publication.
SSRN is instrumental as a starting point for PhD students, professors, and institutional faculty to post early-stage research, prior to publication in academic journals.
SSRN provides the online database of early scholarly research – a permanent and searchable online library – always available, worldwide. Academics and researchers can browse the SSRN data library and upload their own papers free of charge. Majority of papers can be downloaded from SSRN free of charge.
